Blueberry breakfast cake, iced coffee, candy bacon, mother's day brunch

Mother’s day might look a bit different this year because we are going to all be at home. But no matter where we are, we are blessed if we can still eat some delicious food and be with our family, so here’s a fun mother’s day brunch idea for you!

This brunch includes a blueberry coffee cake, sweet and spicy bacon, and a creamy cold brew iced coffee to top it all off!

Overnight Blueberry Crunch Coffee Cake

Making breakfast the night before and then baking it in the morning is a game-changer. I now do this every holiday because we want a special meal, but who wants to be waiting around for 3 hours for breakfast to be ready. Not me, and certainly not my kids!

Overnight Blueberry Crunch Coffee Cake is one of those recipes. Mix it up the night before, and then in the morning all you have to do is bake, eat, and answer “Oh it was nothing!” when people ask how you made it so quickly.

Creamy Iced Cold Brew Coffee with Cinnamon

Ohhh I love coffee. I especially LOVE iced coffee. It makes me feel like summer is near and right now that makes me feel happy.

Making cold brew coffee concentrate is easy and the bonus is you make it the day before you are going to drink it (see a theme here?) That way it’s ready to go in the morning when you need your jolt. No waiting = happy mom.

Brewing The Cold-Brew Coffee

Cold-brew 1 cup water 1/4 cup coarse ground coffee. I usually make my cold brew in quart size mason jars and 3 cups of water plus 3/4 cup coarse ground coffee grounds fit perfectly in a jar.

Once your coffee and water are well mixed, let the mixture sit for 12-18 hours in your refrigerator to allow the coffee to infuse into the water. The ideal time to steep your cold brew is between 14 and 18 hours. This will give you the best flavor without the bitterness that could come from steeping too long.

Strain out the grounds using a fine mesh strainer.

Storing Cold Brew

Transfer your strained cold brew to a storage container, such as a large mason jar. Store it in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. After a week I find that the flavor starts to degrade and the iced coffee won’t taste as good.

  • Strain out the grounds using a fine mesh strainer.

To Make the Creamy Cold Brew With Cinnamon
